<p>Situated within the rural town of Esperance some 730kms south east of Perth, Esperance Senior High School forms a strong link with its community. This is reflected in the school’s vision: A strong community, creating opportunities for personal excellence.</p><p>The strong foundation of the school’s vision lies in its seven values of: Achievement, Collaboration, Engagement, 21st Century Learning, Integrity, Respect and Responsibility. Whether out and about in the community on workplacement, as ambassadors for their school and town on state, national or international occasions, or as members of the school community, the students consistently represent the school values to a very high standard. They are a credit to themselves, their family and the school.</p><p>To achieve the school’s vision and values, three pedagogical (teaching and learning) pillars inform the teaching and learning program across the school: cooperative learning, e-learning and giving and receiving feedback, which are the focus of the school’s priorities from 2014 onwards.</p><p>Through our vision, values and pedagogical pillars, we aim for Esperance Senior High School students to develop into knowledgeable, confident, caring, optimistic and resilient young people who will lead fulfilling lives, set and achieve realistic goals, and contribute productively to their community and the broader, global community, in order to work towards a sustainable and preferred future.</p><p> </p>
21st Century skills include communication, collaboration, teamwork, integrity, critical and creative thinking and finding and solving problems, which help to achieve common goals and address local and global issues.
